We were really captivated by the stunning looks of Citroen’s DS9 concept, in fact so much so that I had to tweet a few pictures of it late last night. Due to be unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show later in the month, the DS9 is Citroen’s fourth ‘Déesse’ (goddess) model and the first that really lives up to its name.
Making its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month, the DS4 Racing Concept is Citroën’s answer to the Renault Megane Trophy, with a chassis 35 mm lower than the regular DS4, a 55 mm wider track at the front and 75 mm wider at the rear.
After the success of Citroën’s DS3 who could blame Citroën for wishing to offer the same stylish and individual qualities further up the range. Enter the new DS4, Citroën’s offering in the VW Golf, Alfa Romeo Giulietta, BMW 1-Series and Audi A3 Sportback segment.
The DS3 put Citroën back on the shopping list of drivers looking for something with a bit of flair and the joie de vivre that the French brand became so famous for. The mid-sized DS4 offered a less funky interpretation of Citroën’s joie-design range, looking more like a re-skin of the humble C4 than an innovative new design – but now with the DS5, Citroën have turned the funk back up to ten.
